When People Spell “Colors” Wrong

I can’t stand when people spell the world colors like “colours.” I know it makes sense to have a “u” in there, but there isn’t one.

  1. Yes, there is a U. “Colour” is the correct spelling for UK English. Not everyone is an American, and a lot of different countries speak English, and each country tends to have its own subtle language variations.

  2. This one is about as clever as the person who complained about the word “mum.”
